Vietnam’s textile and clothing companies are currently being upgraded. Last year, the Ministry of Industry and Trade presented the government with a general restructuring plan, which includes a number of objectives, such as closure of fibre- and textile-producing companies working with out-dated technology, and increasing the productivity of the Vietnamese textiles industry.

To support this modernisation and expansion process, Karl Mayer Workshop Vietnam has officially launched with Grand Opening Ceremony last month, following nine months of sufficient preparation.

On the day of opening ceremony, representative from Illies, Kuna Robert and Wu Chun Yan, the trainers, who are providing courses for Vietnam Workshop from Karl Mayer, and Eddy Ho, Sales Manager of Karl Mayer Hong Kong, welcomed the participants of the first phase of workshop.

The visitors – customers from Hanoi and Ho-Chi-Minh-City – attended the premiere event held from 13-17 November, followed by a second one, held the following week. Each of them took place in Ho-Chi-Minh-City and was attended by six participants.
